Not The America I Grew Up In

Almost 50 years ago when JFK was elected President of the USA, it was a shocker. He was a Roman Catholic, Irish yet, even worse. For the almost 200 years of America's history presidents were exclusively WASP males and married once only.

Now, just under 50 years later and the unthinkable! The Democratic Party, Kennedy's party, is going to nominate a Black man. OK, his mother was WASP, but he looks black and has a proudly Black-first wife.

And who's the runner-up? A woman! I kid you not. If Rip Van Winkle had gone to sleep in 1960 and woken up this year, he'd not believe it. He'd probably have more trouble absorbing this shocker than the Internet.

The US Left/Liberals, including JFK's own family, decided that Black was better than the feminists. But it may be a mistake. Hillary is a lot tougher than Obama, and her support is a Trojan Horse or sorts. She has been planning her run for 50 years, before
Obama was born. Actually, he was born just a few months after Kennedy took office. Will he be able to reign her in? She's old enough to be his mother and would have supported him as her successor.

This should be fun to watch.
